Monadnock announces line of RIT HP Indigo 3-Star Certified media made with 100 percent post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled fiber. The line includes uncoated and coated options under its flagship Astrolite PC 100® line of fine recycled printing papers.

  • Astrolite PC 100 Digital+ for HP Indigo is available in weights ranging from 80 lb. text to 130 lb. double-thick cover.
  • Astrolite PC 100 Velvet C2S with a universal coating optimized for HP Indigo (LEP), dry toner (EP) and offset lithography presses, available in weights ranging from 80 lb. text to 150 lb. cover. This single ply 150 lb. cover is unique to the industry.

All products in the Astrolite PC 100 line have a matching shade. The surface is crafted using the best formulation chemistries for optimal LEP print performance. The Velvet coating provides an exquisite matte print surface that is unlike any other coated fine printing paper. The grades are available in a full range of sizes including 12×18” to 29.5×20.75” to accommodate the full portfolio of HP Indigo sheet fed digital presses.

“Today more jobs require shorter runs and variable data with the print quality that HP Indigo presses afford,” said Julie Brannen, Director of Sustainable Innovation for Monadnock.  “Because of the high quality of Monadnock’s PCW recycled papers, there is no longer a compromise between quality and the environment.”

All of Monadnock’s fine printing papers are Forest Stewardship Council® certified (FSC® C0018866) ensuring responsible use of forest resources. They are manufactured carbon neutral with 100% Green-e certified renewable electricity. The paper is recyclable in the curb-side mix paper recycle bin.
